One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it earned an A+ short-term care grade. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.
